about

Released 2009.

"..."Hello From the South," "Drinking at a Party," "Bullet Train" and "Mission From God," sound like effortlessly poetic letters from an alert, compassionate friend. Morgan has access to deep feelings and possesses the gift of being able to express them with mood-appropriate music. Her voice changes with the mood: from girlish to womanly, delicate to bold, as the songs move from intimate to anthemic. With acute insights, shimmering synth hooks and smoothly shifting melodic textures, "Warm People" is difficult to classify but easy to love. —Wayne Robins, Billboard

Available in physical CD and special 12" LP red vinyl format (see above)

Track Name: fore!
fore!

bells in the wells in their lost eyes
blood comes in them all that love
become become so unfoolish
in a house, howlin' moon
play out! play out!
in a house, in a house
in the yard, be proud!
blood.... blood....has seen an arrow, bound
quiver.... quiver.... silence comes around
for the tee-off, fore!
Track Name: hello from the south
hello from the south

morning.... hello from the south
the weather is terribly easy on the skin

morning.... wherever you are
the kitchen, the metro, the office, the car

i throw stones into the lake
they're begging, for goodness' sake

are you up in the fire escape
admiring the view
it suits you, it suits you
& sometimes i'm quite sure
that it suits me, too

green trees come in the spring
green trees cover everything
and i'm high, i'm high on a mountain
and you're high, you're high on human beings, whoa

morning, it's 10 o'clock
i'm wondering if you been 10 times 'round the block

morning, wherever you are
the kitchen, the metro, the office, a mountain, the newsstand, a stranger, the studio, the car...

are you up in the penthouse admiring the view
it suits you, it suits you
and sometimes i'm quite sure
that it suits me, too
Track Name: the weakling
The Weakling

In the weary winter on the coldest street
From the weakling fingers to the wildest meat
Would you say I love you to the thin blue air?
Or descend a mountain like a hungry bear?

In the chill of every morning it keeps you warm
& if you pull on the side of the melody, it keeps its form
& I cling, cling to the ceiling
Cling, cling to the ceiling
Cling, cling to the ceiling

From the icest ice cream with the smoothest spoon
I devour sweetness by the light of the moon
With the thinnest arms I still can hold you up
In the wee hours I take from the fullest cup

With the willest will I try to tell you so
But there’s nothing I can do if you already know
I could descend a mountain like a hungry bear
But the weakling’s closer to the lion’s share
Track Name: drinking at a party
drinking at a party

(drinking at a party)
& watching people starving themselves
no meat on their bones
no cellular phones

the happiest people you know
got one change of clothes
and anything goes

is it good enough for you?
then good enough will do
is it good enough for you?

(drinking at a party... wishing i was happy)
Track Name: bullet train
bullet train

we were good
but it just don't play
worked hard, anyway
wild horses couldn't pull me away
(it's a long wait)

tuesday and a bullet train
tuesday and a bullet train
tuesday and a bullet train
(gotta get away)

it sticks, sticks, sticks inside of you
and it sticks, sticks, sticks in me
i came here as a diamond
& i leave in misery
(we were good!)
Track Name: big grey peepers
i'm only special when you
turn around with those big gray
peepers and the sun is
bright bright bright i'm only
human
ooh
ooo
ooo

dance, turn about
and i'm working the house
and i love words
& some may fall out
been waiting awhile for been waiting awhile for
sun say-un say-un sunset oh
been waiting awhile for (from behind a cloud for)
a fancy light, so i settle under it

some may punch an eye out
& some wear hellos
in a way-way we all
hate rock & roll
been waiting awhile for been waiting awhile for
sun say-un say i'll follow (allo)
been waiting awhile for, give in in awhile for
"allo hello hello hello hello," oh
Track Name: mission from god (album version)
mission from god

remember when we crashed that car
i said i thought you went too far
i didn’t want to go but you made me

& you & jimmy drank a lot
& the christians all said you ought not
do what you do to a lady

& i played the part
of a broken heart
cause i was on a mission

on a mission from god

and in the wake of all of that
is when your god stepped up to bat
you gave me some books to amaze me

and you and jimmy prayed a lot
and the christians all said you ought
to do what you do to the natives

& i played the part
of the purest heart
cause we were on a mission

sure enough our brown-skinned brothers
worshipped in the sun
you gave them some verses and a daisy
they thought you were fuckin’ crazy

on a mission from god
Track Name: cannot afford u
cannot afford u

crazy, but i cannot afford u
we've been lazy, but soon you'll grow bored, too, with me, yeah

sunday morning sunshine
always on the move
sunday i'll go "beep beep, beep beep"
crashing all those cars

crazy, but i must inform u
when you're someone's baby, you'll want to ignore me, won't you, ah
Track Name: bones
bones

when my hands curl up from moving fire
and I can’t hold out
i make a pile
of bones

the bison, drove out for human desires
and skulls in thousands
a pyramid pile
bones

hands up & arms out
move in tighter
Track Name: warm people
warm people

break I’m breakin’ a little at a time
wish i didn’t do it, but i’m part of the crime
i’m boohoo boohoo aching inside
& it all comes out on you, you (you, you)

i’m lame in the brain, i’m a little insane
scaramouche, scaramouche, will ya do the fandango?
listen to your mother, tell her that you love her
listen to each other (listen to each other)

i’m boohoo, boohoo aching inside
i’m boohoo, boohoo aching inside
i’m boohoo, boohoo aching inside
and it all comes out on you

i’ll huff, i’ll puff,
i’ll blow your house down
i’ll huff, i’ll puff,
i’ll blow your house down

men in a line, they walk in time
they got haircuts

this car’s gonna take us (is it gonna take us?)
all the way out to las vegas
thinking of you & i can’t stop my head from spinning
out


is it gonna take us, (will it ever take us)?
is it gonna save us (will it ever save us)?
i’m boohoo boohoo aching inside
and it all comes out on you

i got a plan
i will use both my hands
i’ll build a fire
to warm
and they will see it from space
and they will know what we got
we got warm people
warm people
